A WORLD OF DIVING
ADVENTURE AWAITS...


Vobster Quay offers high quality SCUBA training, trips and skill development for divers of all levels. It will be as much a privilege to guide your first steps into the world of diving as it will be to introduce you to extended range diving, or mentor you as a rebreather or technical instructor. Our aim is to create safe, skilled divers who will enjoy diving our oceans, lakes and rivers.

We offer a full range of recreational diving courses from the world's largest and most respected diver training agency - PADI.

We also offer technical, extended range and instructor training from IANTD, the original technical agency.

Call us to discuss finding the course that's right for you. We can provide training for relaxed holiday diving in the Red Sea to deep wreck expeditions.

Once qualified, join one of our many Vobster Quay trips. We organise guided diving days, weekend trips and week-long expeditions to UK South coast, Scotland, Malta, Norway, France, Egypt and more. From 'critter watching' to exquisite reefs and historic shipwrecks, we'll guide you as you apply your skills and knowledge to achieve your ambitions. Every dive has a story to for you to discover.

We understand divers learn at different rates. Our professional instructors and divemasters have long experience of diver training, meaning we can tailor a programme to match how you learn best.

We strive to deliver courses and trips that are a cut above the rest, ensuring you learn to dive in a friendly, fun and - above all - safe environment.

SICK OF GDPR YET?

Yeah, we get it - you're probably just a little bit bored of all this talk about the new General Data Protection Regulations ("GDPR") requirements that come into force on the 25th May. Sadly, though, there's no getting away from it all - from this Friday onwards, we won't be... [more]

Out with the old and in with the new. Bank replacement time at Vobster Quay.

Nice work MV Salutay!

POSTED: 18th May 2018

Vobster Quay is on the lookout for new staff: general assistants (the unsung heroes) and divemasters - everyone gets paid and we provide training, including blending. CVs to info@vobser.com please!

Remember, this is how the Mission High Water team began....

Cheers, Tim

SIDEMOUNT IS GREAT:

A bit of attention to kit fettling, some attentive skills progression and Steve Cook delivers victory smiles with instructor Howard Angel. Streamlining, easy valve access and great balance, personalised setup from an experienced sidemount instructor - what's not to like?

REDBARE TRY DIVES:

Congratulations to Ross Freeguard, back for a second bite at the RedBare cherry, with excellent results. Lovely dive, good buoyancy control, session on menus, systems and downloading, big smiles to round off. See you soon for training Ross, great performance! Cheers, Tim

POSTED: 15th May 2018

Massive congratulations for this fundraising effort by ex Vobster Staff Sarah Tingey and Rachael Priest. Dogged persistence and self belief really does get stuff done - we can all take a lesson from this. Cheers, Tim
